How to define Boho?
Bohemian style is a feminine and unconventional way of living. It is a nature-inspired and carefree design, with interiors influenced by world travel, filled with a mix of patterns, textures, colors, and furnishings.
What does Bohemian mean?
Elements of Bohemian interiors:
Colors are inspired by nature: earth tones, such as browns, oranges, and yellows. They can be vibrant, such as coral hues and bright blues. Boho Chic, a more recent off-shoot, leans more toward pastel colors—we often find these in modern farmhouse interiors.
Boho textures and fabrics:
Fabrics have a mix of colors, patterns, and textures often dyed in vibrant hues. Macrame, burlap, silk, chenille, fringes, and crochet are good examples of Boho fabrics.
Furniture, lighting, and accessories:
Furniture is usually vintage or used and is comfortable and cozy. Many pieces have sentimental value or represent a place or time that brings back memories. Handmade items are also incorporated into the decor.
Lighting is an important element of the Boho style: string lights, lanterns, candles, any light that can create a soft and calm environment. An overhead light can be a Morrocan metal lamp, with many perforations, that creates light patterns around the room.
Rugs are usually large and can be layered by using different textures and colors. They are a key factor for achieving Bohemian comfort.
